Full Answer

An investigation by The Center for Auto Safety found that fuel tanks on Jeep Liberty models manufactured between 2002 and 2007 were installed too close to the rear bumper. This raised concern that the gas tank could ignite in a rear impact. The Chrysler company voluntarily recalled the models in question. Once received by a dealership, affected vehicles are outfitted with a trailer hitch to help place more distance between a potential point of impact and the gas tank. This recall also affected the Jeep Grand Cherokee for model years 1993 to 2004.

Smaller recalls have been issued for Liberty models every year from 2002 through 2011 for various reasons, including air bag issues and suspension problems. Jeep Liberty owners can check to see if their vehicles have been recalled by entering VIN numbers on Mopar's Owner Connect page. Concerned owners can also take their vehicles to any Chrysler or Jeep dealership for more information. Recalls are often issued as a proactive measure in order to prevent potential problems or to correct design flaws..
